Our Responsible Sourcing Code of Conduct  

Davcor Group Pty Ltd (Davcor) is dedicated to the highest ethical and social standards. Accordingly, Davcor seeks to conduct business with organisations who share our dedication to these standards and who operate with an ethical and socially responsible approach.   

The reason for this Responsible Sourcing Code of Conduct is to share Davcor’s philosophy and expectations of suppliers in relation to labour and social issues from supplying products and services to us.  

We recognise that many of our ethical and social repercussions reside in our supply chain. We also recognise that positive implications can be realised through purchasing more responsible products or services and working together with suppliers to positively influence mutual ethical and social outcomes.  

The Responsible Sourcing Code of Conduct applies to all companies and organisations that provide products and/or services to Davcor.
